Just popped up on the ol' Fox News ticker... Arnold Schwarzenegger will indeed run for Governor of California.

At least then he'd stop making movies. I'm not sure what would be the greater evil.

I would vote for him...I think it puts politics and everything a little lighter than it was...i mean you see on CNN all the anchors with their poker faces saying "Yes, Schwarzenegger, star of such movies as Terminator 3, will be running for governor." It's funny. And there could be a helluva lot of ppl who would be worse for the job.

Most of them already hold office in California.

Wonders if Doug (nbcrusader) will vote for this pro-choice moderate?

The writers of Saturday Night Live will probably have fun if Arnold becomes governor. While his intelligence is underrated, hearing him deliver speeches is going to be strange, a little like when he recites lines from Hamlet in Last Action Hero.

Hello,

I heard about this on the radio this morning. They also had some soundbites from Arnie, saying why he wants to run for governor. He also said he wants to go to Sacramento and 'clean house'.

Am I the only one who gets Terminator flashbacks with this phrase (or Commando flashbacks, or Last Action Hero flashbacks, or Red Sonja flashbacks)?


C ya!

Marty

'I'll be back!' (sorry, couldn't resist myself )

I thought the interview was great. I dont agree with his politics but the smart money would be on him.

hey... ron reagan was president of the screen actor's guild... so why exactly can't an immargrant cititzen, who happens to be an actor, and who obviously has strong convictions and isn't an idiot when it comes to politics, run for office? i mean... why not? if i were a citizen of California, I'd most deffinetly listen to what he has to say, and then make my decision. Just because he's in the Terminator movies isn'ta reason to discount his effort to run for the Governorship.

Arnold's an intelligent guy, he became a millionaire through investing in real estate long before he became famous as an actor, and he's done a lot for the state of California, especially for schools, plus his work for the Special Olympics is well-known- so I don't think most people are discounting Arnold because he's an actor or because he's Austrian. They find humor in the fact that the man famous for playing Conan the Destroyer and The Terminator could possibly join the elite club of governors. Schwarzenegger even finds himself funny, he was definitely poking fun at himself in Last Action Hero, Kindergarten Cop, Junior, and Jingle All the Way by putting himself in fish out-of-water scenarios. Would a line like, "It's not a tumor!" / "It's nahda toomah!" (Kindergarten Cop) be funny if said by another actor? Arnold not only made it funny, but famous. He even tries to work catch phrases from his movies when he talks. It's all in good fun.
